After enduring violence and sexual assault for a decade, Happiness Soine finally gained justice when the perpetrator was arrested after a journalist published her account. In an effort to raise public awareness of gender-based violence, the Health Policy Initiative (HPI) collaborates with the Association of Journalists against HIV/AIDS in Tanzania to build the media's capacity in reporting on stigma, discrimination, and gender-based violence.

She now lives happily with her two sons in a new house on their plot of land in the Arumeru District.
